Black and yellow, black and yellow - green and gold, green and gold - decisions, decisions - which one will win? I think I'll be neutral and wear all yellow tomorrow! LOL I'll look like a lemon, but that's OK, right?
Are you doing anything special for Superbowl Sunday - a party, friends over, CRAFTING? I'm a sweet wife, so I'll be my hubby's football companion otherwise he'd be watching the game all alone. He'll appreciate that. I hate football. What can I say? Love means never having to say...oh, wait, that's wrong...Love means sharing what he likes to do!
There are a couple of commercials that I think are too funny - the one is a Dorito commercial where two guys are discussing Doritos. At the very end, one guy sticks the Dorito flavored index finger of the other guy right into his mouth! The second one is for Pepsi, I think. A couple is sitting on a park bench having a bite to eat. A gorgeous jogger runs by and sits on the bench next to the couple. The male half of the couple is distracted by the gorgeous jogger. The female half notices the distraction and tosses her hamburger (or was it a can of Pepsi?) at the guy who, right at the same time, bends over! The result is that whatever is thrown hits the jogger on the side of her head, knocks her right off the bench and onto the ground. The couple runs away leaving the gal on the ground. Both commercials have that unexpected twist which I find to be the best aspect. You didn't see "that" coming!
I have a couple of snack goodies all lined up. One is mini BLTs in puff pastry. It's easy and self contained! The other is soup. For us, soup is a must on Superbowl Sunday. I'm thinking cream of almond soup or split pea (hubby's fav). That's quite a contrast of flavors, isn't it? LOL Then, I got it into my head to go back in time and make a Chex Mix from the 1960s. When I looked for the recipe, I found one that said it was the original recipe. When I read it, it included pita chips! I don't think so! Pita chips weren't heard of back then! I dug a little deeper and found one that I think is the original as I remember it. We'll see.
I have been busy, busy, busy! I'd like to share a Valentine card with you. It's my second ever easel card. I had a little fun with it by placing Edwin inside the dry embossed bird cage, LOL. Of course, DH had a lot of "guy things" to say about Edwin in the cage. I won't share them here, ahem. I used punches, ribbon, pearls, Stickles, Bazzill, patterned papers by Bo Bunny, Distress Inks, and, of course, Magnolia Stamps. Tilda has been elevated on pop dots as are the little butterflies (which are also Magnolia stamped images). On the back is a little, white vellum envelope for a love note. I wish you could see all the embossed details on the bird cage, but white just isn't a good color for showing embossing. The cage is so beautiful!
Here's my creation:
I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges:
